HOUSTON — Congratulations are in order for a Texas Southern University student who won the International Competition for Entrepreneurs.
Anthony Collier, a junior at TSU, won first place in the competition. His team consisted of four other TSU students, including David Funchess, Shanique Brown, Aubrey Conley and Ashytn Duncan.
Collier and his collaborative team were recognized for an innovative electromagnetic chip idea called “RadBlok,” which was designed to boost cell phone reception, conserve battery life and keep the phone at a safe temperature while charging to avoid overheating.
The competition was held in Montego Bay, Jamaica, where 12 different schools from across the world came to compete.
The title win marked TSU as the first and only HBCU to be admitted into the program and take top honors.
In a recent interview with Dr. Boyce Watkins, Collier describes RadBlok in more detail and explained that the chip features includes 24K gold!
The chip is available to order on www.RadBlok.com.
